NEW: Warren Takes Offensive Ahead of Brown Tax Speech

Tuesday, August 14, 2012


Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren released a statement Tuesday morning slamming Senator Scott Brown for his voting record on taxes and subsidies for oil companies.

The statement comes just hours before Brown is scheduled to deliver a major policy speech on taxes at the South Shore Chamber of Commerce in Randolph.

"Scott Brown is staging a speech to make phony attacks against me, hoping that it will distract people from seeing his voting record on taxes," said Warren.

Warren claimed that Brown voted to protect subsidies for big oil in the past and voted against the Buffett rule for taxing billionaires, a measure she supported.

"Scott Brown has consistently voted against middle class families and small businesses while he votes for special deals for those at the very top," she said.

"He can’t run away from his record, his endorsement of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan or his Republican Party. They stand together to help the rich and powerful get richer and more powerful."

While Warren said she supports middle class tax cuts, Brown has accused Warren of supporting massive tax increases to the tune of $3.4 trillion over the course of the next 10 years, a number he plans to hammer on in his speech this afternoon.
